Clear the Shelter This Saturday!

Nationwide Pet Adoption Day

August 15, 2019

Clear the Shelter Day is this Saturday, August 17th! 

This national holiday was created to help dogs and cats that have been abandoned or surrendered to shelters find forever homes. It takes place from 11 am - 4 pm on Saturday at all local shelters. 

Clear the Shelters Day is sponsored by NBC and Telemundo, that team up with local shelters for this national pet adoption drive. 

Adopting a pet has many benefits including finding a forever home for these animals who may have been abused or abandoned, saving money, fighting puppy mills, and making room for other unwanted animals to join the shelter. Many of the shelters are nonprofits that are trying to improve community life and the life of these animals. By adopting a pet you are supporting a great charitable cause! 

It has been estimated by the ASPCA (Amerian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) that at any given time there are around 3.3 million dogs and 3.2 million cats in shelters.

Clear the Shelters is an amazing day that not only benefits the animals but helps the people find their furry best friend!
